It's really too bad that a restaurant that may have above average food and service can lose a good review because they refused to ask a family to control their terribly behaved 14 month old who was allowed to scream bloody-murder and bang toys on the table for the entire duration of their meal. Certainly these were bad parents who... More

We had to eat here because it was near our hotel. The pasta dish I shared with my daughter was tasty, but to share a bowl of pasta for $19 is a bit much. Our waiter was excellent and the atmosphere was nice and relaxing.

Good food, and the wait staff helped to keep our little one happy (and quiet). The kitchen was Very accommodating to an unusual request we had. The cake turned out great.

We ate here on the first Saturday in June and, again, we had a lovely meal here. The food is extremely good, fresh ingredients, well-prepared and well presented. I have had better Italian food, but not by much and it was always in a much more expensive restaurant. I really like this restaurant and really like eating here but I... More

It's rare to get the chance for a restaurant connected to a Hampton Inn. This is a nice small Italian restaurant, but the small seating area means it can get quite noisy quickly. So avoid the typical busy times unless you are ok with a less than quiet dinner. (I just wish they offered the squash ravioli all the time....had... More

This is a nice place to eat with reasonable prices. The pizza is great and so is the chicken parmesan.

We are visiting in Stamford, and stayed at the Hampton Inn attached to the restaurant. Decided to try Villa Italia due to the reviews here. It was a good decision. The restaurant has a bar section and a main dining room, which was lovely. Our server, Mia was excellent. Good wine and drink selections. Wish we had been able to... More

This restaurant has great food and ambience whether you are there for a casual lunch, business lunch or dinner. The night we were there there was live music which brought in a good bar crowd and the restaurant was busy for a mid week dinner.

I had chicken parmesano wihich was over cooked and tough. They did take it off my bill. My husband had veal scampi which was tough also. The prices were a little high. But I will say that the atmosphere was very nice. But yet we were disappointed. The service was very good. But I probably will not go back
